Milimani law court Chief Magistrate on Wednesday layed off an application by the prosecution to hold state house communication strategist Dennis Itumbi for nine more days.
Itumbi is being investigated by detectives over a letter said to have a plot to assassinate Deputy President William Ruto and he has been released on a cash bail of Sh100,000.
However,the court has further directed him to report once in every week to the investigating officers at Muthaiga police station for the next 14 days.Additionally itumbi was asked to submit his passport to the court to guarantee future appearance.
The court additionally also directed the police to return his phone within two weeks.
The prosecution had told the court Itumbi belonged to a 256-member WhatsApp group where the letter alluding to an assassination plot was shared adding that members of the chat room are under investigation.
The court observed that police admitted having taken some documents for digital analysis, which does not require his presence.
The magistrate further disagreed with the prosecutor that Itumbi, if released he will interfere with investigations given his influence and being an officer based at the Office of the President.
The matter will be mentioned on July 22 to confirm the progress made in ongoing investigations
